The testing of the intellectual output created for the Erasmus + Strategic Partnerships project “How to Raise an Inventor”. Technology and engineering learning material for schools) is beginning.
Starting in October, four modules created during the project will be taught during the lessons or after-school sessions at three partner schools – Kaunas University of Technology Engineering Lyceum, Riga Second State Gymnasium and Signum de Haren Elementary School (The Netherlands).
Seventh grade students will study modeling and programming with Lego robots and Microbit computers, technical modeling and 3D printing, and solving technological problems.
A survey will be conducted before and after the intellectual product test to assess students’ attitudes towards STEAM subjects and their technological knowledge and skills. Teachers will also provide feedback to module developers in a structured way. Test results will be analyzed and summarized at the end of the test period. Based on the findings of the study, recommendations for teachers on the use and application of the teaching aid will be provided.
Intellectual output testing will continue throughout the school year until June 2019.
